Ratings and Reviews
Valued but outdated
I'm relatively new to Parkrunning and I love that there is an app but it's clearly not been maintained to support progressive iOS upgrades.
Tends to crash on open, pages often don't populate, interface is clunky and keyboard integration is wonky as hell.
For the uninitiated Parkrun is a community operated nonprofit event that relies on corporate sponsors, which explains why the above is probably so - if anybody from Parkrun leadership is reading, please PLEASE approach somebody for funding or pro bono work to bring the app up to modern standards. We appreciate the organisation and its volunteers, and a slick and stable app would really increase the appeal to new, younger participants.
Still needs work.
When you click 'my parkrun' and then 'news' items appear but the links lead to 'no more details'.
The news feed is always empty.
You have to keep logging in which makes it a bit painful.
It's a pity you have to request to friend people. On any browser you can look people up from parkruns that you know about through the results and bookmark their personal page to follow their activities. So why not through the app? Maybe, if you know the athlete's number you shouldn't need them to get an email and confirm?
Also on requesting friends, I've sent a few friend requests to people I know who parkrun and none of them got notified. Does this mean they need to have the app installed too? If so, that's not ideal.
Hopefully, some things can be improved and I'll be able to recommend this app to people.
App crashes continually.
I love parkrun. I started 18 months ago. I try to do it every week. It's helped me lose 10kg. So when I found this app many many months ago I was a little bit excited. But it continually crashes and the only solution is to delete and re download. A parkrun friend asked Mr Parkrun Boss (Paul whatsisname) what's going on and even he said that deleting and re downloading was the only solution. As another reviewer has said, get it done by professionals and charge a small fee. Serious parkrunners would be only too happy to pay.
